I just now HULU'd McCain's SNL appearance. Amazing. He essentially gave his defeat speech three nights early.

Cold open with "Tina Faylin": You know what I sensed in McCain? I saw a palpable sense of relief that pretty soon he's gonna be allowed to start acting like a human being again.

Weekend Update appearance: That was a pretty good Darell Hammond impression.

This, I think, also accounts for the marked improvement in his mood on the campaign trail.

How has it felt to have the name "Sarah" become so ubiquitous the past month?

Terrible.  I was talking about it to another Sarah just yesterday.  We both agreed that we'd feel better if at least Ms. Palin's first name had no final "h."  Also too, though, since each of us can see a foreign country from her house, we figured we're as qualified as she is.

I dunno but I realised I'm really into dangle-ly stuff: shiny earrings and bangles that clank together.

It's bizarre I find that appealing I wonder if there is some evolutionary significance to it.

Babies are powerfully attracted to shiny, dangly jewelry, TE.

From reading your many posts, you're far more qualified than Palin is.

I expect our vice president to be at least as smart as I am. That's not asking much.

But the reason I like her is because she's just like me and my friends!
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

Come on, Jason
